Productivity is not about doing more work.

2018-10-09-Blog post.jpg

There’s a perception that to become more productive means doing more work. Yet that is not the purpose of becoming more productive at all. Becoming more productive is about becoming more effective at getting your work done so you can spend more time doing the things you want to do with the people you love being with.

The world we live in today is an amazing place. We can do things, visit places and experience events our grandparents could only have dreamed of, yet our work seems to fill up our time leaving little left to enjoy life. When you become more productive, you free up time and mental energy by getting your work done more efficiently and you experience less stress because you know exactly what needs doing, by when and how.

Living a life of less stress and more fun!

When you know what needs doing, by when and how you are going to do it, you feel more relaxed about what you face. When you collect everything into a trusted place and you have everything organised in places you instantly know where to find later, it creates a sense of calm. It frees up your mind to become more creative, more at one with your surroundings and to enjoy time spent with people you care about without worrying about the workload facing you on Monday morning. It allows you to leave the office at the office so you can be fully engaged with your family and your friends at home.

The consequences of not being productive.

I work with many people who have allowed their work to take control of their lives. Bosses, shareholders, clients and suppliers are constantly demanding time, leaving them stressed and worried about what they haven’t done. Their minds are constantly trying to remember if they have forgotten something, they never have time to relax and it’s not a nice place to be. It leads to anxiousness, dangerous levels of stress and when they are not at work, their mind is still working, worrying about the presentation they haven’t finished, the report they haven’t written yet and the meeting with the important client on Thursday afternoon.

The good news Is making a few simple changes to the way you manage your day is all you need do. Taking a few seconds to collect your commitments, ideas and events into a digital to-do list or writing them down into a notebook when they happen. Spending around ten minutes at the end of the day organising what you collected in a way you will see them when you need to see them is all you need. It’s simple, not necessarily easy, but it is simple.

Practice and patience.

With practice, a little patience and some time, collecting your ‘stuff’ becomes a habit. When it becomes a habit the whole process becomes automatic and when that happens you will find yourself more productive, less stressed and more in charge of your time.

When you become more productive, the first thing you will notice is your stress levels reduce. This is an almost immediate change in the way you feel. You have everything organised and where you need it. You are fully aware of your approaching deadlines and you know where you need to be, with whom and when at any given time. Just that level of control over your time will have a significant positive effect on your overall feeling of wellbeing.

The power of self-discipline.

One of the wonderful side effects of becoming better organised and more productive is your self-discipline improves. The fact you took the time to set up your ‘system’ shows that when you put your mind to something you can do it. It builds momentum and momentum is an incredible fuel for self-discipline. When something positive happens, the feeling you have is addictive. That sense of accomplishment leaves you craving more accomplishment and you begin looking at other areas of your life to improve. It creates a wonderful cycle of positive change that can only benefit you and the people you care about.

Over the last few weeks, I have been thinking about how I can help more people take control of their time and become better organised and more productive. I know when it comes to self-improvement, for many people improving their productivity and time management is not high on their list of skills to acquire. But productivity and better organisation is the foundation on which you can build huge improvements in your life. Consistently improving ourselves is essential if we want to grow as human beings, but if we don’t have the time to self-improve we will never get round to doing so.

Introducing From Disorganised to Productivity Mastery in 3 Days.

1*sAYZ9BWO-ODXRzq9FuJukA.jpeg

So I decided to put together a three-day online course — No, the course does not last 72 hours — It is a course where you take three days and by a combination of classes and time to take the required action you can become better organised and more productive. Over the course of three days, you will have around thirty minutes of tuition each day, followed by the rest of the day setting up and putting in to practice everything you learned in the classes. You start on day one by collecting all your stuff together and getting it organised into places you can find when you need it. The second day teaches you the basic tools you need for an effective productivity system and the final day, called “implementation” gives you a system that has helped thousands of people from all walks of life around the world go from being disorganised to becoming productivity masters.

This whole course is designed to get you from where you are today to having the skills of productivity mastery in just three days. It won’t be easy but it is simple and with a little patience, quite a bit of action and consistency, over time you will become a productivity master and with that start enjoying the benefits of less stress, less time spent in a cubicle at work and more time being with the people you care about doing the things you want to do, when you want to do them.

The course launches on Friday (12 October) and I hope you will join me and start a new, incredible life by becoming better organised and more productive so you can spend more of your precious time with the people you love doing the things you want to do.

For more details, you can visit the course’s page here where further details of this incredible course can be found and where you will be able to enrol from Friday.

Good luck and see you on Friday in the From Disorganised to Productivity Mastery in 3 Days.

Why Time And Life Mastery Matters.

It is a very busy world. A world where anything that might be interesting is broadcasted to the world instantly. A world where everyone appears to have an opinion on everything from the size of Donald Trump’s hands to the latest famous celebrity misdeed.

We also live in a world where our boss, colleagues, friends and customers expect us to reply to their demands within seconds. It is a challenging world.

While in many ways this world is exciting, fun and awe-inspiring it also means we have very little time left for the things we want to do. Many people don’t have any time to even discover what it is they want to do so they drift from one demand to the next without stopping for a moment to think about what it is they want to do and achieve.

This is why last year I created the Time And Life Mastery course. A course designed to help people discover what they wanted to do with their lives. To establish some goals and to have a clear vision about the future they wanted to create for themselves. A future where goals and ambitions take centre stage and the demands of others are assessed before being acted upon.

Taking control is a vital skill

Taking control of your own life and time is a crucial skill today. Being able to assess an interruption or demand and it’s value in our lives so we remain in control and not allow it to be pulled into places we have no interest or desire to go in. It’s hard, particularly when our always-on digital devices demand our attention. But it is possible.

It’s possible to wake up in the morning and begin the day working on yourself. To exercise and take care of your health. To be able to begin the day with a plan that involves working on yourself and not other people. To have a plan for the day that is flexible enough to take care of the demands the day throws up and be able to work on your life so each day you become a better, more effective person crystal clear about what you want to achieve and how you want to live your life. It is not easy, but it is possible.

Time And Life Mastery has been created to help you get your life and time back. To guide you towards discovering the goals and things you want In your life. To give you the tools to develop those goals and ambitions into achievable plans and to show you how to manage your time so your goals and ambitions are built upon every day.

This year’s Time And Life Mastery is even better. There are ten new video classes and new worksheets to help you develop your plans. From finding the fifty things you want to do and achieve over the next ten years to understanding what your majors and minors are so you can put in place the 2+8 Prioritisation system.

Build your own framework where the important takes centre-stage.

Time And Life Mastery will give you the framework on which to build a fantastic life and a life of no regrets. It will give you the skills and know-how to take back control of your life so you become the director of your own life story and not your boss, family, customer or society.

This year’s course goes live on Friday 3 August and I would love to see you there. I want to help you build a life you want to live. To be able to help you achieve your goals and dreams and be your life and productivity guide through this time demanding, but exciting world.

If you are already enrolled in Time And Life Mastery this is a free upgrade. If you are new to Time And Life Mastery there will be a limited time early bird discount on offer. You can visit the course page right here to see what’s new and over on my YouTube channel I will be posting a few videos giving you more details about this fantastic course throughout the week.

I hope you can join me in this course so you can start building the life you have always wanted.

The Beginners Guide To Building Your Own Productivity System.

BGTBYOPS.jpg

Over the last few months, I have been thinking how I can best help more people discover the wonderful benefits of getting better at time management and more productive. To show more people how by having a productivity system that works for them can reduce daily stress, begin an unstoppable journey towards achieving their goals and ambitions and to give them more time to do the things they really want to do. 

I have written books, created extensive online courses and produced over 300 videos on YouTube. Yet, I feel there is so much more I can do to help more people discover a world of being better with the time they have each day. 

This is why I have created a new FREE course called Beginners Guide To Building Your Own Productivity System

One of the strongest beliefs I have is that a productivity system needs to work for you. If you prefer using digital technology then your system needs to work digitally. If you prefer pen and paper then it needs to work on paper. And if like me, you prefer a hybrid system then it needs to work both digitally and on paper. We are all different and we all have different lifestyles, ways of thinking and ways of doing our work.

However, the basic foundations of a great productivity system never change. You need to be collecting everything that is thrown at you into a place you trust you will look at regularly, you need to spend some time each day organising what you collected and you need to do the work so you meet your deadlines and you know what is coming up in the next few weeks and months. 

This new course will help you start the process of creating your own system. It explains the principles of COD: Collect, Organise and Do. It also takes you through the tools you need in order to implement COD and it explains why you need PACT (Patience, Action, Consistency and Time) in order to build the habits so the system you build for yourself works without you having to think about it. You will collect naturally, organise naturally and do the work naturally. 

Project 1 Million banner.jpg

This course is part of my PROJECT 1 MILLION project, a project to help one million people by 2020 get better at time management and become more productive. I passionately believe that once you know what needs doing, when and how at all times, your stress is reduced, your health is improved, your relationships with loved ones improve and your goals get achieved. Overall, being better at time management and becoming more productive changes peoples lives for the better and I want the whole world to experience these wonderful, life-changing benefits

The Complete Guide To Creating A Successful Life Is March’s Special Offer!

SUCCESS March Promo.jpg

Whatever it is that makes you happy and ultimately feel you are successful, the way to get there is hard and the road is littered with failure. Very few people ever get close to achieving a successful life. 

The list of reasons for this is long, but the most common reasons for not achieving any kind of success is because people get caught up in their day to day busy lives, have no plan and never think about what it is they want out of life. They just follow what society and others have told them to follow and hope for the best and the best usually turns out to be not much.

In over fifteen years of teaching busy professionals communication skills, I have learnt everyone has the same goal in life. To be happy. The difference, of course, is what makes us happy. For some that is having a large network of friends to hang out with, for others is it having the financial means to buy nice cars, houses and clothes. 

Life is amazing and full of opportunities and possibilities no matter who you are, where you are from or what your education level is. All you need to tap into these opportunities and possibilities is a vision and a plan. A vision of what you want out of life and the way you want to live and work, and a plan to execute on that vision so it becomes a reality. 

This course will take you through those necessary steps to build a life of success on your terms. It will show you how to put in place the foundations on which you can build a life you love, a life that brings joy and happiness and a life that you can be proud of. 

It will also teach you how to develop the necessary self-discipline and habits so that you can start building the life you want from day one.

This course is a combination of what I have learnt in over twenty years of reading and learning about success and what I have learnt from really successful people I have taught over the last fifteen years. The people who have amazing careers, live their lives full of happiness and have an amazingly positive outlook on life. 

If you want to achieve success, live a life you love living and have energy and enthusiasm every single day, then enrol in this course today at the incredible value of $47.50.

This course has never been cheaper and is only available at this price until the end of March.


What’s included:

  • Over 3 hours of lessons
  • 32 Videos
  • 11 downloadable study sheets
  • Lifetime access to this course and its future updates for FREE
  • Study anywhere, anytime and at your pace
